this such uncertain environment? >> well, turns out it's looking like a fiscal cliff hanger, doesn't it? up to the last minute. i think that investors tend to get caught up emotionally too much, and there's a couple things to do towards the end of the year. one is if you have not taken capital gains, going from 15% to 23.8%, do that monday. if you have a gain in a position, take it, buy it back right away, pay the tax at a lower rate. that's one of the things to do. also, make sure that next year you increase your 401(k) to 17,000 or 23,500 if you get the extra over 50 amount. take a roth 401(k) plan because that's more valuable as tax rates go up. ashley: good point. >> look at the conversions, the 529 plans, anything to be taxed hurts more. anything you can do as a consumer, and, of course, moonnies is more valuable next year as well. ashley: very good advice. you say don't sell in a down markets. put the cash to work. worried about catching the falling knife? >> not at all. the s&p500 up 15% going through the european crisis and the election. the market charged forward. corporatio

this environment to get enough republicans and democrats to support a deal that the white house wants on deficit reduction? because they been to the altar so many times on this same issue, taxes, medicare, social security, defense spending, you must wonder, if there's any agreement possible. host: first, commented today from the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell, who will join his colleagues later today at the white house. [video clip] >> i told the president last night we would be happy to look at whatever he proposes. the truth is we are coming up against a hard deadline. as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. republicans are not about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats before or just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that would not be fair to the american people. that said, we will see what the president has to propose. members on both sides will review it. then we will decide how best to proceed. hopefully, there's still time for an agreement of some kind that saves the taxpayers from a preventable economic crisis
